Connecting to a MySQL Database

This topic demonstrates setting up a connection to a MySQL database from GlassFish ESB — NetBeans IDE 6.1.

Connections to databases are managed using database drivers, which enable applications written in different programming languages to interact with the database management system. GlassFish ESB — NetBeans IDE 6.1 comes bundled with the MySQL Native (mysql-connector-java-5.1.5-bin.jar), which is a Java implementation of the JDBC API, and communicates directly with the MySQL Driver.
